This joystick is based on the geometry of the Wico joystick used by Williams in Defender, Joust, Stargate, and Moon Patrol.
Smooth and Precise.
Roller bearings at the pivot, and a screw in handle removes the two causes of slackness in the wico original (which gets worse with wear). This gives a super smooth and precise action.
The handle has a fixed 31mm ball on a stainless steel shaft, and it screws into the pivot. Note that this means an end to twiddling the handle between waves, so you'll have to find a new habit.
